Default UDS Heat Shield & Biscuit Test (Pictorial)


Burnig coals – very hot


Make shift heat shield/baffle/diffuser – 10x10x0.25" mild steel plate


Fire basket & diffuser in their native environment





U-bakem biscuits – the natural enemy of burning coals


Ritual of sacrifice



It's a little warmer on the west side. (Photo taken facing south) Ironically, the air inlets below the grate are at 12 & 6 o'clock. Heat should be even from east to west. I can only assume that the Earth's rotation is somehow affecting the combustion airflow. No doubt the heat distribution would be reversed in the southern hemisphere.
